Prasanjith Caldera of Walk With Jith first met David Nelson and his friend Bob Crawford from Middlesbrough, UK at the British Bird Watching Fair in 2007. Subsecuently they went on a bird watching tour in Sri Lanka in February 2009. In this very successful two weeks bird watching tour they spotted more that 230 birds including Serendib Scops Owl in Sinharaja rain forest. In Yala national park they were lucky to spot two big Leopards at very close range.

20th February to 7th March 2009

Jith & Mr. Silva,

I will start with a very big thank you for lots of hard work and early starts in the mornings which got us to your total of 231 species with only two of the endemics missing. This is a very good total and we are more than pleased with this number. Many of these would have been missed had it not been for your sharp eye and good hearing.

Good luck for the future!
See you at the Bird Fair.
